Ubuntu Drive Visible to OS X?

Probably they're the real folders as I think OS X abstracts the real
file strucuture of the system. If they don't have read + execution 
permissions for your user you won't be able to see them. Either open the
shares as root or modify your fstab line to:

/dev/hda1     /media/osx  auto   rw,auto,user,umask=000  0  0

This is not the most secure option, but it'll probably work. And please
double check it's safe to write to a mac partition from linux, I think
the support is still experimental, but you better check with someone who
is more knowledgeable about those issues... If you'd prefer you mount
read-only, change rw to ro.

> OK, I edited the fstab (needed to use 'hda9') and got it to recognize on startup. But when I go to /media/osx, it isn't showing me all of the contents of the drive. It's only showing 3 or 4 files (document icons with the gnome foot on them) that say "DesktopDB", "Finder", "System", etc. I know these are Mac files, but I don't know where the other contents of the disk are.
